MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography.. life in general and this and that…

Coffee With Chappy …

4 Comments

I had no intentions of doing a fourth Saturday coffee outing but Deb’s dog Chappy (my granddog) joined us and made it extra special.  He was so happy to be going out with us that he actually relaxed in the car.

We headed out to western New Jersey to Blairstown which is set in the rolling hills of Sussex County.  The sky was dotted with puffy white clouds everywhere.

As always though… coffee is first.  Deb & I have been to the coffee shop before.  This was Chappy’s first time there though and he really enjoyed sitting outside being admired by passerby’s.

Of course Chappy doesn’t drink coffee but usually we can entice him with bites of whatever we’re eating but he didn’t seem to be interested in my bagel.

Although this shot makes it look otherwise, he still refused. (This was a lucky shot, I didn’t realize until later I’d gotten his tongue at just the right moment).

Chappy’s ready now to move on to the next phase of our outing… a walk around town.

Wandering around town taking in the sights… (and sniffs)

I thoughtfully browsed in a store for a bit so Chappy could relax with his mom.   Dogs always look comfy no matter where they are.

If you’re looking for hope, here it is… Hope, New Jersey.. we drove thru it on our way home  🙂

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)

  1. i love all the old buildings in the northeast….such history….

  2. Indeed 🙂

  3. This post just made me so so so happy. I was born and raised in beautiful Sussex County. I lived in Sparta for my first eighteen years before moving south. Thank you for a wonderful photo trip down memory lane. 🙂

    • I’m so glad I made you happy 🙂 You never know when you post something to your blog who you’re going to personally touch with it. I’m not too far from Sparta and often drive up to Lake Mohawk just to sit and enjoy the lake. So glad I found your blog. By the way, I see you do the weekly challenge and I do it also on my other blog… if you want to take a look around it it’s… http://www.throughjerseyeyes.com Thanks 🙂
